  1. That grau-grun on grey mottling is beautiful and catches the eye.I love the bulky A4 more than the langnase and you really got your weathering right.
    I give you a gold medal for this one. Bravo !

  2. Pristine build. The 190 is always a popular subject here.

  3. Beautiful job. And I agree the A's beat the D's! Although 190s are just brilliant subjects all round. You've done justice to a great plane!

  4. I forgot to add - great presentation - very nice photography!

  5. Yeah...what they said, Michal...!

  6. Very nice - another great clean build. I too prefer the chunkier A's to the D's - looks more muscular! Great job on the mottles - not always easy to get looking good.

  7. Very nice work and a great result.

    Good looking build

  9. Well, someone has to say it; you guys are just wrong and the Dora is a far more beautiful airplane. There. Said it.
    Having said that, this is a first class butcher bird, Michal. Amazing artwork.

  10. Michal, This a good example on how to take a blah color scheme and make it look nice, Well done !

  11. Very nice. I'm doing this one as Faber's aircraft in British colours and markings

  12. Beautiful, crisp, clean build. a real beauty.
    Excellent job Michal

  13. Wonderful... everything about it... 🙂

  14. Yep, like the rest of the guys have already said, simply excellent, clean build. You've really made that mottle 'live'.


  15. The 190 doesn't do much for me generally, but that is a beautiful model. Such a nice, clean build.
